I'm pleased by the extended warranties - but also by an important corollary: the instruments will continue to be supported for an extended period of time. It is always frustrating when an instrument continues to work - but some trivial support item is no longer available.

Do you find that extended warranties are actually helpful? How often do you need warranty service?

Every laptop computer that I've owned his required significant repairs under their extended warranty - that feature has been much appreciated. In laboratory instruments, the extended warranty has not helped me personally - BUT I've often encountered out of life issues. Having a longer support period would be appreciated.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
